It's the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, and everyone gets ready for the big kick-off on TV. You bought the usual chips and salsa and possibly a container of guac, but what else do you serve? Homemade dips of course! With so many dip recipes to choose from, we thought we would help you narrow down the seven healthy alternatives that will surely please any super fan who walks through your door.
Oh, and they can all be made in 30 minutes with seven ingredients or less, leaving less time for cooking and more time to hang. Whether you have the whole neighborhood over you or just step out with your family, you'll enjoy an evening full of snacks while cheering on your favorite team or just watching the half-time show.
This is really easy crowd-pleasing dip finds this sweet spot between salsa and guacamole. Obviously, Guac is a breeze when it comes to appetizers, but we loved how this recipe confuses things by adding warm ingredients to the mix. And it's incredibly easy to do: you just have to chop up a few avocados, put in some corn, black beans, a little red onion and it's all about business.
The Mediterranean diet is ubiquitous these days. A Mediterranean bath fits this list. The olives, peppers and feta alone produce an idiot-proof taste profile. However, put some parsley in it and you will suddenly have a whole new level of freshness that lightens even the dull February day. Better yet, Greek yogurt makes it a healthier option, so you do not have to think twice about whether or not you need a spoonful.
With only five ingredients and five minutes to prepare, this is probably the easiest jump on the list. It's the perfect last-minute solution if you find you have the wrong number of people for your Super Bowl Party and need to feed twice as many people as you thought. You really can not go wrong with bacon and cheese, but the almond flakes give the mix a satisfying texture and the spring onions give it a fresh bite.
Spanish-born Romesco is a traditional red pepper, almond and smoked paprika sauce. If you've never had it, you'll wonder why it took you so long. Where bread is commonly used as a thickener, this recipe deftly uses potato chips to make it gluten-free. And although it requires a certain brand, every chip will do the trick.
You really can not go wrong with shrimp, especially when combined with Creole spices that will delight your taste buds. This recipe even offers some variations of ingredients for those who use keto or low carb diets, making it a good option if you are hosting friends with dietary restrictions.
If you're vegan, Super Bowl parties can be tough. Salsa and Guac are cool and all, but what about all those creamy, cheesy dips you can not have? We thought that was not fair and added a tasty, cheesy cashew queso dip for all vegans.
No Super Bowl snack spread would be complete without the instant classic: spinach artichoke dip. This recipe is cheesy, simple and healthier when you try the usual mayonnaise in Greek yoghurt. We suggest that you make an extra large amount, as this is guaranteed to be the first aperitif that disappears.
